    We had the same problem on our Vanguard. Even sent the head out for "SUPER" cleaning. Ended up replacing.

    If you have a good head test and it is the only head to go bad, there is a good chance it is the last chance filter screen right at the ink inlet. If you want to call me I will discuss it with you

    I do not think the head damaged. The technician's conclusion is premature.

    The first thing you should do is bleed the filter. You should be sure there is no air in the ink feeding line.

    Second, you should clean the head nozzle surface with the flush. Use a swab or lint-free napkin. USE NO ALCOHOL EVER. Then perform standard cleaning with the vacuum cleaner. In case of no progress, perform the short flush procedure from the Oce PC menu.

    Only then we could make the conclusion. But everything should be fine.

    If you have the degas modules installed in your printer, check all connections and the modules itself - there may be a leak somewhere or the module is damaged internally and air may not be removed from the ink.
